Glamping, or ‘glamorous camping’, is one of the hottest types of vacations at the moment. Sometimes hotels can be a bit bland and lack in character, whereas a vacation in a tent can make an unforgettable experience.
Here at AllTheRooms, we understand the necessity for comfort, so we’ve rounded up the top luxury camping experiences in the world, from an incredible safari tent in Kenya, through to a traditional Mongolian Yurt. Here are six unique Airbnb glamping spots:
1. Safari Tent, Kenya
This luxurious safari tent in Nanyuki, Kenya, is comfortable enough to rival a hotel room. The tent is a bell-shaped tipi with tons of special touches, including a comfy bed, power sockets and plenty of amenities. There’s the option to hire a chef if you want a totally relaxing vacation. The campsite as a whole (six tents) sleeps a minimum of six guests and a maximum of fourteen people. You’ll wake up to panoramic views of Mount Kenya and the location is right by forests, wildlife park and natural pools.

4. Alpenglow Luxury Camping, Glacier View, Alaska
The Alpenglow Luxury Camping tent in Alaska is the perfect place to snuggle up on a cold day. The tent features traditional Alaskan decor and a porch area with stunning views of the Matanuska Glacier. The tent has a wood-burning hot tub (an essential in Alaska’s cold climate), warm blankets and good WiFi. It really is luxury camping at its best.
5. Malibu Safari Chic Tent
This Malibu Safari Chic Tent in California is as glamorous as camping gets. The tent is a large canvas space with an ensuite bath. It’s the perfect off-the-grid experience as the tent is in a wifi free zone, meaning you are forced to relax and remember what the world really is all about. Obviously, bring your phone fully charged so you can get pictures to Instagram once you’re back in reality. There’s a WiFi connection just a short walk away at our pool area, however, so if you’re in need of checking your emails, you’re covered.
6. Mongolian Yurt, Colfax, California
This incredible Mongolian Yurt is situated in the picturesque Sierra Foothills in California, just 1.5 hours from Lake Tahoe. The Yurt is a glamorous tent, with an onsite pool, sauna, hot tub and masseuse.
